“Good choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

Clean quiet rooms, friendly knowledgeable staff, convenient parking and location, great complimentary breakfast provided in a beautifully landscaped patio. The bathroom in room #15 needs updating. Water temperature in the shower was difficult to adjust and once in the shower the temperature of the water fluctuated...too hot one minute, too cold the next. No soap trays in the shower. Water backs up in the sink. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, but next time we will request a room with an updated bathroom. Bring your own hair dryer and iron. Bring a flashlight because there is no light in the closet, and that is where the luggage rack is located.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an updated bathroom.

My family and I came on and mini vacation and stayed here. We had a room with 2 full size beds. The room was pretty quaint. I have a 9 month old so we had a rough time keeping him from the open electrical wires. The breakfast was average, nothing fancy like eggs or waffles. We also had a minor problem with little black ants in the bathroom. The parking wasn't the best either. It was an ok stay for a short stay but wouldn't be my first pick for a long stay.

We visited Santa Fe for the International Folk Art Festival and booked four nights in this charming Route 66 motel. We received helpful advice from the owner/staff; also the use of a corkscrew to replace ours confiscated on the airplane! The best thing about this motel is the friendly and fun atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast of fruit, cereal, juice, coffee, and a variety of breads, but most of all, we enjoyed visiting with the other guests there. I think the pleasant attitude of the staff filters down to the guests and makes for a good experience for all. Everything else was more than adequate: comfortable bed, television, microwave, refrigerator, good shower. There are also picnic tables on the grounds and plenty of parking just outside each unit. Highly recommended!

Clean, friendly and nice 'roadside motel' in the best of the 50s tradition. Bed very comfy, maid service top notch. Reception very helpful. They provided me with a coffeemaker for the room. i had a fridge, microwave, wifi and flat screen 19" TV all of which worked very well indeed althoug TV is mounted pretty high to clear the microwave. Bathroom in the blue yellow style of the fifties very well set out. Shower is SRO but lots of hot water after long hiking days. AC worked great but very noisy. Rooms are light on light but typical for the type. Styled in southwestern colors. There was a small desk with two chairs, plenty of closet space for a small room. Yeah, I liked it. Cerrillos Road is very crowded during the day but thats about the worst of it.

This hotel was an excellent choice for an icon Route 66 motel. The rooms were spacious. All of the staff were friendly and extremely helpful. It was lovely to enjoy the breakfast on the patio area. Would recommend as one of the best Route 66 icon motels.

It's hard to find an inexpensive room in Santa Fe. Based on TA we decided to take a chance for our quick trip (one night) and booked a room at Silver Saddle Motel....A Blast From The Past. Realizing it's an old motel we found it to be terrific. Immaculate, great beds, excellent service, funky fun cowboy art in the room, all at an amazing price. It doesn't try to be the Hyatt but what it does it does exceedingly well. We didn't have the breakfast so cannot comment about that. We appreciated the free wifi. Our only complaint was the air conditioner which was noisy and a bit hard to regulate. Silver Saddle is a budget motel that is MUCH more fun than any chain...Lot of special little touches.

Room Tip: We had room 22, about as far from the street as you can get. It was fine.
